Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born Annabelle Mary Henderson w/o Jesse Rupert (Columbiana County) and only child born to John Cassell Henderson born Newport, Kentucky and Mary Beaton Jenkins born Glasgow, Scotland. Jesse Rupert is s/o J Vernon Rupert born Columbiana Co, Ohio and Mary Paden.

Only paternal roots in America, I follow a path to Fairfax Co Virginia (grandmother's name Pritchartt).

Some interesting facts discovered about my family:
Henderson, Nevada named after my group.
The Hendersons still operate the oldest family owned Drug Store in America to date called "Henderson's Drug Store" founded 1841 by Osborne Henderson in Glasgow, Howard Co Missouri. The oldest Henderson in my group, lived to be 104, Dr. Joseph Lewis Henderson as did his sister.

I have no biological connection to Ohio and
will transfer any memorial in Columbiana/Mahoning Co Ohio to persons with interest.
I check and work on this daily, update edits and will respond to email/corrections, etc promptly. Please note as I have posted many memorials from the cemetery index volumes, Audrey Allison has brought them to life by walking the cemeteries, photographing and posting headstones to thousands of the memorials. It is a joint effort by many.
Please do not ask for a transfer then "disappear from the face of earth"!

To all who so righteously remind us the primary purpose of Find a Grave is "GRAVE REGISTRATION", and then "boringly" recite in your bio the FAG rules... yes we get it! To the group I work with, it is a mere "starting point" as we all work together, share, and seek to know more about the folks, what they looked like and where they lived as we "register their graves". All of us will go to great lengths to find out more!. .. to sum this up they are "NOT JUST A NAME ON THE A STONE"!

GREATEST ACCOMPLISHMENTS 2014 YEAR - Two new stones shine from the "Pritchartt" plot in Bellefontaine Cemetery in St Louis Mo for the first time...

May 20, 2014
Placed a military marker on an unmarked grave... After a long search for military records for a great uncle who was a Conf Soldier, and alas, finally secured them and accepted for a military headstone placed on his grave after 114 years beneath an unmarked grave!! He was Pvt John Norvell Caskie. Thanks to Angela Smythe who had an interest in the Caskie family and provided a copy of military record that made this all possible.

Aug 18, 2014 - Stone placed on great grandmother Maria L Bingham Pritchartt's grave who died in 1859 from anemia. Stone is now set in plot St Louis Mo. She has rested for 155 years in an unmarked grave, but that will be no more. I guess that is why I was chosen to do what I do. Amen

I encourage relatives to post old photos to memorials and I will sponsor ANYONE's memorial just to have additional photos uploaded. (It is well worth the $5.00 Find a Grave charge) Focus as of 11/9/2014 will be to review current memorials created, complete data as to birth, date, place, etc and to link/find parents, siblings or family. Just as in life, every memorial should be linked to family. And "friends" keep those edits coming my way as it helps so much identify all the folks at rest. 7/20/2015 currently working on editing and updating families and relationships in Fairfax City Cemetery in Fairfax Va, and the surrounding area.

I research many names, particularly ones that are difficult - various ethnic groups that came to America and altered their name, and slaves. Everyone has the right to know who they are, including adopted individuals.

My files are now available to me and I save everything posted.

(1)I accept all corrections from posters - If it is not correct, it can be changed!! Simple as that!!

(2) I never post a memorial or grave that I won't research further as to parents, siblings, etc.

Youngstown Vindicator after 1958

RE: Jacob O Rupert 5643720
Thanks for doing that research! I know that that name runs in their family and there are a few of them. And I know of two women--one is Rebecca Rupert (she married a Rupert, but I don't know her maiden name) and another (ours) is Margaret Rebecca Oyster. Both ladies have similar birth and death dates (within a few years) so they look like the same person--to the untrained eye, but the places don't match up, etc. Just like the Benjamins--remember that one--ugh! Really learning how important it is to make sure all dates and places and families match as close as possible.

My mom, who started all our research in our family tree did that with another branch of our family. There are two Alexander McGregors born in Michigan in the same year, and died near the same year, but in two totally different places, and his wife was different and children were too. So after years of researching I had to tell her it was wrong, and she was barking up the wrong branch of the tree!

Anyway, thanks for working on it; we appreciate all you do!

Good evening Anne,

Thank you for transferring this memorial to our family's care. If you would like to revisit it, you'll see I have kept my word.

We hope to someday hear from some of John's direct descendants (while he is blood-related, we are not direct descendants). In which case, if they'll do it, we'll happily transfer your memorial to their care.

A big THANKS (not really sufficient, but ...) for all you do!

I've sent an edit for Anna's birth year to be changed to "1888". Attached to her death certificate (on is an affidavit that explains that the birth year of 1889 on her death certificate is incorrect and that 1888 is the correct year of birth.

Looking for info on Pvt Wm Wayne
My name is George David Wayne and Pvt. William Wayne was my 3rd great grandfather. I'm desperately looking for information about him. Some records show him to have been born in Virginia and others say Pennsylvania. I'm stuck as to anything about him. Thanks

RE: Lucinda McCurdy
Did Gladys have any McCurdy's in her notes? Did she know about Lucinda McCurdy being married to Benjamin Rupert?

All the names being the same makes it so confusing. Apparently there is another couple with the names Hugh and Sarah McCurdy from New York that is confusing everyone--ugh! They were born in the 1860's though and the other couple were born around 1790.

I don't know what to think about the family from Westmoreland, Pennsylvania with the Hugh, Sarah, Sarah, John, Martha, and Lucinda and their birth years being all different... Could they be two different families with the same names; I guess anything is possible...

Well, thanks for working on it!

RE: Jacob O Rupert 5643720
Hi Anne!

Thanks for working on the Rupert's... Did you mean lots of them used too "P's" like Ruppert? I've never seen it written Rupertt.

Mom passed away this Good Friday, so we no longer have her to ask about her family...but she always said her great grandmother's name was Lucinda McCurdy.

We know from the census with Benjamin Rupert that she is born in Pennsylvania. The Wonsetters also came from Pennsylvania, as well as the Ruperts & McCurdys.

In the 1850 census she is age 18 and born in 1832. (With her family.)
In the 1860 census she is born act 1837.. (With Benjamin Rupert) Her last child with Ben was in Oct. 1859.
There is another 1860 saying 1834 (with her family.)
In the 1870 she is born in 1837. (With her family.)

Family=Hugh, Sarah, Sarah II, Martha, John, Elizabeth (in some)
From Hempfield, Westmoreland, Pennsylvania

I'm confused... Either no one knew anyone's ages OR there are some people with the same names that are confusing everyone! Ugh!!!

Her third child was my great grandmother, Amanda, and there were 3 older teenagers living with them in the 1860 census from Ben's previous marriage. According to the census, Benj. was 42 and she was 23 and the teenagers were 16, 14, 12 and she had a 5, 3 and 11/12. For a 23-year-old, I don't know if I could have done that. Maybe she went home to her parents... Haven't found a find-a-grave for her or any other death record in Indiana.

I don't remember if mom told me what happened to her... There's an obit FB page for people that look for obits, but they haven't found anything on Lucinda...

Thanks again for looking at the tree!

RE: Great job on research
Thanks Anne for your kindness!

I see that you have been here on Find A Grave since about the year 2000. You have done a remarkable job! You are dedicated and truly love what you're doing.

You are showing the love of God to those who cross your path. Thanks for reaching out to people. May God continue to bless you on your journey.

Take care,

Hi Anne,

I guess the stones are right, but the information isn't. Like the Jacob they were trying to say it was didn't have the same birth year, not even close and his birth place posted belongs to him.
